tyleranneliese This is the moment Stevie told me he loves me. He loves all of us.

The moment he shared his whole set was doing to be dedicated to Prince. That he would love for us to join him in singing "Purple Rain". He sang and said all of this, but most of his fans couldn't hear.
We just saw him escorted offstage and we stood there, soaked in our boots, in total denial. After the crowds slowly left, one kind security guard told me what he said. I couldn't love Stevie Wonder any more.

tyleranneliese Dear New Orleans,

It's been nearly a decade since we were last together.

I last inhaled your air and walked along these broken Ninth Ward streets as a first year student, eyes wide and heart torn open 14 months after Katrina made landfall.

Your kind community taught my confused 20 year-old heart what resiliency means.
What "home" feels like when you can't come back.
Why messy, multifaceted roots carve deeper grooves in your soul.
In fact, I still seek out soulful places thanks to two things: my late mama and listening to your music on Frenchman Street. Soulful music over monotonous top 40. Spotted Cat over Coachella any day... for me.

This picture stings my eyes. I can smell the rain and feel the drywall and insulation in my eyes. I held a pic axe more than my pillow most days and probably drank more beer than water, thanks to ringing in my birthday and the new year in the heart of this city. I can't wait to replace those sensations with muddy dances and an adult education in Southern springtime.

It's finally time to discover your new reality and learn even more from your strength. I can't wait to meet you again.
